Tunisian media 'free of fear'

Tunisian uprising helping to advance free and open media environment, journalists say.

    One of the outcomes of Tunisia's uprising has been an obvious increase in media freedoms, journalists in the country say.

    The La Presse newspaper in Tunis has a new editor and a new outlook. The paper that tended to carry the president's picture on the front of each edition is now focused on reporting that is free of fear.

    Books once banned are now on display publicly, and radio stations host call-in shows where people are free to air their views.

    From Tunis, Ayman Mohyeldin reports.
